Hmmm.... keep a sharp eye for those white spots. They can crop up anytime.

I'd say it's early signs of ich. Anyone else got a clue?

Does she look like she has a gold tint to her? Its best to look with a flashlight. A gold tint might be velvet.

Yeah I think it might be ich or velvet. I would put her in a clear cup, if you got her in a clear cup put her in that then use a flash light and inspect her.

Have you tried looking at her with a flashlight? Velvet will look like she has been dusted with sand or tiny gold particles.

Other than that I'm really not sure...just keep looking and keep an eye out for ick or velvet.
